Magazine subscription

I'm looking at getting a motorcycle mag subscription to get me through the winter months.
Any recommendations?

I really like Iron and Air. It is mostly an online magazine, you do have to pay for it, but i have really enjoyed the 3 issues i have read

I subscribe to both "Cycle World" and "Motorcyclist" and enjoy both. David Edwards' new magazine "Bike Craft" is exceptional, but kind of expensive - leaf through the table of contents to see if it interests you. It's more about the art of motorcycles.

I've been gettin Cycle World forever in the mail, but when I'm at the news stand I tend to grab Cafe Racer or Classic Bike from across the pond.

"Classic Bike" is my all time favorite

Classic motorcycle mechanics..very very good and no ********, unlike MCN which as of this week ( and after 10 years) I am cancelling...there's some bloody awful mainstream motorcycle journalism out there now...theyre completely bereft of ideas

+1, I don't have a subscription but get it when I can. I have a subscription to "Cafe Racer" and I love it but it comes out in two-month intervals.

My girlfriend's dad and my boss each have a subscription to Cycle World so there's no need for me to get one. I usually end up with both copies anyway, lol.

I recommend Greasy Kulture. It's mainly about old restored and custom bikes, rather than specifically about cafe racers, so not quite sure if it's what you're looking for (although there's usually at least one Triumph in each issue).

I really like the magazine's attitude. Little bit of info about the builder, excellent pics of the bikes. It's not pretentious, it's just about regular guys building awesome bikes.

Still one of my favorites...Dice. Certainly not focused on Cafe bikes, more related to Bobbers.
